Hip hop quartet Far East Movement are back, and stronger than ever with their sophomore album, “Dirty Bass”, released on June 11th here in the states. After a mix up of release dates (the album was released internationally on May 22nd), the group threw in a few extra surprises in there, such as more tracks and crazy collaborations.
The album opens up with the title track, which catches a listener’s ear at first listen, being a perfect mainstream club track. Genres collide with their lead-off single, “Live My Life” featuring teen pop sensation, Justin Bieber. The album also features a “Party Rock Remix” of the track, mixed by none other than Redfoo of the “new 80’s” duo, LMFAO. As the album progresses, the listener may find themselves thinking every single track is a hit for all different kinds of pop music lovers. Tracks such as “Where the Wild Things Are” and “Turn Up The Love” are the epitome of a tune you would hear on Top 40 radio as you’re driving down to the shores this summer.
Far East Movement have outdone themselves in another way as well. As compared to their previous release, “Free Wired”, the group has collaborated with a few more chart topping artists, such as Pitbull (“Candy”, which was featured in the film Project X) and Flo Rida (“Change Your Life”).
In short, we can definitely expect Dirty Bass to be another success fo Far East Movement. As singer Kev Nish puts it, it’s perfect “booty shaking” music, and definitely a booty shaking good time!
